Poem #190

They told me my place was under
the bed because that’s where monsters hide.
And what are you going to do when
I accept that role and crawl from under
to come after you?

You tried to demonize my name.
Told me that even my smile is nothing but a sin.
Why are you trying to make me feel ashamed?
Is it because you’re exposing my faults
just to hide your insecurities?

I dare you to call me a monster one more time.
Just provoke me, give me a reason to crawl
from under that bed and kick open your
closet to show you all the skeletons you’ve
been so carefully hiding.

Is it because you’re exposing my faults, just to hide your insecurities, I love this Luna…….., I think some people are just caught up in a much deeper darkness that they can’t even realise and would only mask it up by exposing the faults of others.
